Mercy Thompson Series

Mercy Thompson #1-12 by Patricia Briggs (2006 – 2020)
Fiction | Paranormal Thriller
5 stars

The Mercy Thompson series currently includes 12 books with the latest installment released this year (and I think there may be more on the way?) but for this review I’m only covering the series as a whole. I was able to get my hands on all twelve books from my State’s Digital Library but I thought it might be way too much to write out twelve entire individual reviews and figured I’d consolidate it into a series overview. There are also more books in The World of Mercy Thompson which expand the world to include Mercy’s first encounter with Adam and her new job as a mechanic as well as to follow a new pairing, Charles and Anna (also called the Alpha & Omega series).

The Guild Codex world has a new series coming out and of course I am excited for it! I first fell into this world through The Guild Codex: Demonized but after reading the only book (at the time) published in that series I had to search for something else to fill my sudden hunger for Urban Fantasy and dove into The Guild Codex: Spellbound. Ever since then I’ve been bouncing back and forth reading both series in the official recommended timeline order as new books are released and I’m ready to add a third! Keep reading this post to find out more about The Guild Codex world especially the latest edition, The Guild Codex: Warped, which brings in a shiny new co-author PLUS enter a giveaway!

Today I decided to share my latest acquirements: the collector’s editions for Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom (fantasy) as well as Sarah J. Maas’ books A Court of Thorns and Roses and Throne of Glass (fantasy). I don’t really have the money to splurge on multiple editions of books but I loved these stories so much and the editions looked so lovely that I had to go for it. Keep reading for more on the books, my reviews, and sneak peeks into the bonus content included in these editions!
